decide not to file charges against a d.c. police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black man on a motorcycle. we sent you a push alert on the app as soon as we got word. >> now we are hearing from d.c. mayor bouwser and the police department. >> mayor wants the d.c. police officer who shot and killed terrance sterling to step down. she says that's the only way to get real accountability. you may remember the shooting happened last september in northwest. police said sterling intentionally drove his motorcycle into an officer's cruiser. sterling was not armed at the time. tonight federal prosecutors say there isn't enough evidence to press charges in the case. mayor is calling for a disciplinary review and ordered the d.c. police department to change its policy and require officers to confirm with dispatchers thathe

6:02 pm
that down a bit saying that was the president just sending a warning, a strong warning to north korea not a threat of a nuclear attack. in the battle of increasingly fiery rhetoric between the u.s. and north korea president trump throwing another blow on twitter touting the u.s. nuclear arsenal as stronger and more powerful than ever before adding hopefully we will never have to use it. a stark contrast to this. >> they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before. >> reporter: the president reacting yesterday to news that north korea has a nuclear war head small enough to sffit on ta missile. >> the president is reaffirming the united states has capability to fully defend itself from any attack and defend our allies. we will do so so the american people should sleep well at nigh
6:03 pm
response? a threat to strike the u.s. territory of guam. the president's words seemingly at odds with his team's recent diplomatic actions. the white house says his top advisers were well aware of the tone the president intended to use. defense secretary with tough words of his own warning that north korea would lose any arms race with the u.s. how concerned should people be right now? >> i don't think we have to be concerned about a conflict with north korea that effects united states homelands. >> reporter: president trump pressuring china to check its north korean ally before it escalates into a real fight. as for north korea's threat against guam, california democrat congressman tweeted about that a few minutes ago saying he served on air force active duty in guam and he said
6:04 pm
options against north korea. >> thanks so much. although guam is a u.s. territory the tiny island in the western pacific is not often in the news. it is roughly the size of chicago. 160,000 people live there and they are american citizens by birth. they don't pay u.s. income tax and don't vote input a presidential elections. so why would north korea threaten such a small target for its strategic importance? the u.s. keeps an air force base, naval base and coast guard station on guam. 6,000 american troops are based there. it is protected by a defense system that can shoot down ballistic missiles. guam is well within range of north korea's medium range missiles. many families have relatives in guam as well
6:05 pm

a major development in the russia investigation reaches northern virginia. >> the paul manafort raid is one of the most read stories on our nbc washington app. the fbi searched his condo in alexandria late last month. the predawn raid on july 26 came a day after president trump's former campaign manager met volvo voluntarily with staff of the special intelligence committee. the search is tied to the investigation into manafort's business dealings and financial relationships. the "washington post" first reported that raid today. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams is working his sources and joins us with more details. what have you learned? >> everything you said is what we have heard. what they were specifically looking at we are told were documents and bit
6:17 pm
about his financial transactions, his business dealings overseas especially in ukraine and cypress. so the fact that this search was the day after he testified before congress probably didn't have anything to do with the timing of it. a couple of things here to think about when we think about this search. obviously, the fact that they have been looking at paul manafort for some time is unknown. his lawyer said he didn't do anything wrong and he will cooperate fully with the fbi and robert mueller's investigation and with congressional investigators but the fact that they did a search coming in in the basically middle of the night early morning before dawn while he is still in the house tells you two things. to get a search warrant the feds have to go to a judge and say that there is probably cause to bleebf a crime has been committed and that evidence of the crime will be in the location that they want to search.
6:18 pm
the state of belief of the investigators of what mr. manafort was up to. if he was fully cooperating with the fbi they probably would never have done this search because they would simply asked for it voluntarily. they must have believed that there was something damaging to him there and that he wouldn't voluntarily turn it over or that there was some danger that he might do something to do away with it. i should emphasize the mere fact of a search isn't evidence or proof that there was a crime. it just suggests that he has more legal trouble than we originally thought. >> certainly interesting and big development. thanks so much. >> pete has more new reporting coming up on nbc nightly news with lester holt. a new poll on the virginia governor's race shows the race is still competitive three months before ect

6:50 pm
wording. already talked about the 60% chance of above normal season. why? they are saying due in part to warmer waters, the air and wind pattern and today franklin was the first hurricane in the atlantic so far this season. we are talking five to nine hurricanes and the potential for two to five major hurricanes that would be category three hurricane or higher. before they were saying about two to four. their outlook has nothing to do with hurricanes that make landfall. we could have ten hurricanes or 20 hurricanes and maybe all of them or none of them impact the land. so that's the latest there. currently temperatures are in the 70s and 80s. 82 in washington. tomorrow a high of 86. just a few clouds around tomorrow afternoon. low humidity in the forecast once again. friday there is the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms around especially back around the i-81 corridor and back into parts of fredrick county. there is th
